Quote:The years of Vulcan going into space, taking over the Shi'Ar, etc, and his battles with the X-Men and Starjammers have all served as set up for him to return to Earth at the head of an army, and take his revenge upon Xavier, putting him back in a wheelchair. Yes, it's probably too soon after Secret Invasion to do that story for a while, but after all the build up, it does need to happen. For Vulcan to be killed off in War of Kings would prevent that, so would clearly be a bad idea.
Well War of Kings will have to have some conclusion to be a pleasing story. It's got to end with one side completely defeated. And it's got to be Vulcan. His resources are depleted, he has very little support, and his going up against a huge group of Kree, Inhumans, Nova Corps, GotG, Starjammers and Gladiator, etc.
Quote:Furthermore, he's clearly one of the few new villains of the '00s that's any good at all, that he inspires people to hate him is proof of that, since he's getting the "I'll pay to see this guy defeated" hate, rather than the "I just won't pay to read comics with him in" hate.
But that depends on what the audience is willing to put up with. They may love hating him, but there comes a point when you have to satisfy the audience. Of course, whether that time is now or a few years from now is up to debate.
I don' think he is that popular either. I'm not seeing a huge level of interest.
Quote:Also, look at Black Bolt and Medusa, look at who they've become? Do we really think they deserve to win this war? I want to see them get sent home to the Moon in defeat, and to learn from it.
What have they become? Does Vulcan deserve to win this war? Remember BB was attacked first, so it's hard for Marvel to let the aggressor win.
BB being defeated would be a huge blow to the character, when Marvel has to increase his "power". I think this event will serve to hype him up, as well as Gladiator. BB has to be a bigger player at Marvel, and having him defeat Vulcan in war will help do that.
